Our Editors Agree—These Are the 22 Most Iconic Bob Hairstyles of All Time

Does anyone else feel like bob hairstyles are everywhere at the moment? From the textured bob to the flipped bob and even the stacked bob, we certainly aren't short of inspiration. There's just something about this style that looks so effortlessly chic, and it's even got me thinking about chopping off my long locks. 

When I think about which bob hairstyle I'd like, a couple of celebrities come to mind. Do I want a sleek, blunt bob like Hailey Bieber, or do I go for something with a little bit more texture like Alexa Chung? It's not just the style I'm thinking about either; there's also the colour to consider. After stalking Ciara and Lily Allen's Instagram pages, I've found myself dreaming of a bleach-blonde bob for the autumn months.

However, instead of scrolling through Instagram for hours on end, wouldn't it be nice if there was one place to look at all of the most iconic celebrity bob hairstyles throughout the years, so I know exactly what to tell my hairdresser next time I go to the salon?

Well, I've decided to take it upon myself to roundup the best celebrity bob hairstyles I've ever come across, so keep on scrolling for all of the bob inspo you could ever need…
